aisle. it's about walmart and the mechanics cal can business that was aggressive and creative and a corrupter offering large payoffs to get what the law otherwise prohibited. the times reports that the retailer wanted to build a store in an alfalfa field in a town's main entrance which was barely a mile from some ancient pyramids. the town's elected leaders had prevented the new zoning map that would have prevented it. walmart officials decided to undo the damage by a well played bribe and the guy drawing the map drew it a little differently. >> that's exactly what happened. they found the old map and the new map. they found a disk in a shoe box showing the differences. it was incredible. >> the zoning map would not become law until it was published in a government newspaper, so walmart reportedly arranged to bribe an official to change the map before it was sent to the newspaper. walmart issued a statement saying the allegations are part of that company's ongoing investigation of the last "new york times" piece. >> that wasn't a denial. >> no. but we knew about this. and then
.e.c. chairman harry pitt. the current ceo of cal rama partners. this deal is a little bit different, correct? this one might past with muster? >> yes, i think this one has a fairly high percentage of likelihood of passing. doesn't raise the same problems because of the antitrust issues that really defeated the last several efforts. >> but the interesting part here is what it really says about equities trading and how that business has really changed drastically over the last decade or so. >> it does. and also what's happened to the new york stock exchange, which has effectively become a wasting asset. it's kind of sad to see what was once the premiere exchange in the world now selling for what is a relatively low price compared to historic value. but it does mean that equity trading is not the wave of the profitable future. that really belongs to derivatives and futures. >> is this just something that happened because of what's come about with the machines? the rise of the machines, fewer people on the floor, how margins have been compressed? is this something you could have seen happening t
